Sample text

It is shown in textbooks on classical mechanics (Goldstein, 1980) that the derivative of h taken in the inertial frame is equal to the vector moment M applied about the cm. Therefore, analogously to Newton’s law for translational momentum, we write i. 7-1) M = hcm∕i The angular momentum vector can be found by considering an element of mass ????m with position vector r relative to the cm. Its translational momentum is given by (vcm∕i + ????b∕i × r)????m The angular momentum of this particle about the cm is the moment of the translational momentum about the cm, or ????h = r × (vcm∕i + ????b∕i × r )????m and for the whole body, hcm∕i = ∫∫∫ r × (vcm∕i + ????b∕i × r) dm In order to integrate this equation over the whole body, we must choose a coordinate system and, to avoid a time-varying integrand, the coordinate system must be fixed in the body.

5-5) For a particle of mass m at P, the relative acceleration aP/e corresponds to an “apparent force” on the particle and produces the trajectory observed by a stationary observer on Earth. 5-5) in terms of force, Apparent force = true force − m[????e∕i × (????e∕i × pP∕O )] − m(2????e∕i × vP∕e ) The second term on the right is the centrifugal force, directed normal to the angular velocity vector. The third term is usually referred to as the Coriolis force and will cause a ballistic trajectory over Earth to curve to the left or right.

This inertia coupling has important consequences for aircraft maneuvering rapidly at high angles of attack; we examine its effects in Chapter 4. 7-3. The angular velocity state equation is again simplified when applied to aircraft since for most aircraft the frd x-z plane is a plane of symmetry. Under this condition, for every product yi zj or yi xj in an inertia computation there is a product that is identical in magnitude but opposite in sign. Therefore, only the Jxz cross-product of inertia is nonzero.
